    Pros

    Rock solid, it just works. Quick technical support available both by phone or web chat. Very powerful and intuitive.

    Cons

    Major upgrades and client installations could be more streamlined. Multi monitor support could be improved as windows can easily get lost.

    Pros

    Overall functionality seems conducive to manufacturing companies. The "Pros" are simply that it works. That's really about it. I would not have chosen this software if I wasn't involved in the decision making process.

    Cons

    Outdated, many hidden features that are not easily found, help documents don't really help. Training is expensive

    Pros

    The depth and breadth of the program is impressive. I like the flexibly of use from a small section of manufacturing process, to using it fully from quoting, production and quality testing. Consistency but continued expansion of the IQMS program is appreciated (I am a user since 2004). Help desk can be very responsive when it comes to problems/questions arising. If it is a major problem they will `take you by the hand¿ solve it with you. With the interface I appreciate the ability to jump from window to window to window. I also appreciate it is a multi-window program.

    Cons

    The structure of the database not being directly linked to the naming scheme of the interface can be frustrating when creating reports or finding problems. The structure of security section is hard to manage (groups and sections instead of individual profiles and direct security approvals). Not being able to easily substitute alternative items in the BOMs/Work orders can be a hindrance to accurate consumption. Also the structure of the consumption can be awkward.
    If a change is needed to the program a committee gathers once a year to vote on the focus of the upgrades and improvements, is the process to update errors to the computer system, instead of a more instant solution (though if it is obvious they will fix it sooner).

    Helps run out business and give us quick access to all data to help manage our business on a hourly/daily basis.

    Pros

    Real-Time integration, and our ability to utilize IQAlert and SmartPage for Real-Time display of metric data.

    Cons

    Updates over the last few years have broke functions that have caused problems. Seems like more effort needs to be put into software testing and debug before service packs are implemented.

    We use the software to run our entire company.

    Pros

    IQMS has adapted to meet the needs of our customer requirements that are constantly evolving. They have also put forth a good effort to make enhancements to the system to improve or add functionality to the software for a better manufacturing ERP experience.

    Cons

    Upgrades can be a lot on the rough side. Even with testing prior to going live there are things that happen that should not. I am not sure if is a always a live load situation that provides the challenge, but there has been an increase with issues happening in the upgrade process. Support has also taken a hit over the past couple of years. Level 1 support is lacking on anything but basic issues. If there is anything complex, good luck. Also, if anything happens outside the normal front end interface about 50% of support won't even attempt to help you and the customer is on their own.

    Pros

    MES functionality easy to set up and use. Scheduling module easy to use, easy to move stuff around and work around constraints.

    Cons

    I think the reporting is a little difficult to use. They have a good base of generic reports, but customizing is difficult. It would be a lot better/simpler if there was an easy to use dynamic reporting structure within the system.

    One common database for information. Real time information. Covers all aspects of our business.

    Pros

    Being specifically designed for the plastics industry helps find pertinent data easily. IQMS listens to the users and will make modifications to meet user's requests.

    Cons

    I wish there were more standard reports with more descriptive titles and that the necessary report parameters would be highlighted. While I'm very conversant with the accounting and financial reports, it's using reports from other modules that I could use more information on.

    Increased ability to schedule and monitor a wide variety and volume of orders. We try to run our business as much as we can with this software.

    Pros

    The Real-time live production monitoring is great. The scheduling is strong. The "jump" feature across most modules it great. The context-specific help is good. Smart-page is good.

    Cons

    The forced blanket orders for sales and purchase orders is cumbersome and seems complex. MRP is a bit scattered and could be streamlined.

    A full ERP Suite of modules to operate the business for an end to end software solution.

    Pros

    Ability to highly customize System Parameters, Modules, and Reports in order to meet/exceed departmental goals and needs, Oracle Database, Crystal Reports, intuitive interface and flow throughout the system.

    Cons

    As with any highly configurable system, it's takes time to learn for proficiency. System users must be committed and spend the necessary time to learn their modules.

    It is easy to go between different screens within each module. The GL is user friendly as well as the AR module.

    Cons

    Because the system is modified to fit each company the help center does not provide the information needed when trying to figure something out with the way our system is set up. Issues with having different UOM for our European customers compared to our US customers.

    Increased production efficiency, increased quality, great finite scheduling, reduced inventory, and integrated EDI.

    Pros

    Full featured, comprehensive, and complete ERP package. Using IQMS we were able to increase our production efficiency, reduce inventory, improve quality, and provide meaningful metrics for decision making. Integrated EDI makes this a well rounded solution for all automotive suppliers.

    Cons

    No complaints what so ever! IQMS is a very stable package with excellent support. Keep up the fantastic work IQMS!

    Pros

    I like that you can use online self-help training videos. Navigation from page to page is quick and easy. You can put security on almost everything. The help files are very well done. The IQMS community connects you to other real users for additional help and ideas for the best way to utilize the system. Customer support has always been friendly, easy to work with, and knowledgeable. I am excited for our next step which is moving to the cloud.

    Cons

    Set up is very extensive. Yearly maintenance is expensive. Some features/functions are global settings and not all e-plants operate exactly the same.

    Ability to have real time data which allows us to make quick and decisive decisions for our business.

    Pros

    The ease of use. Very easy to get around and the ability to right click and jump from screen to screen let's you keep moving forward without having to close stuff out and start back up.

    Cons

    I would say Customer Support - Seems like we have to talk to several people before we can get things figured out. Would also like to get information about upgrades and when they're available. Supposedly, our version is like 3 versions behind, which could possibly be causing some of our issues? Would be nice to get some information on this.

    As far as the manufacturing side IQMS does a good job. It is when you get outside the manufacturing that you run into issues. The HR and reporting functions are not nearly as robust as other software that I have used.

    Pros

    Pro -IQMS is a good manufacturing system. The labeling functionality is very good and helps support tracing the origins of all the parts we manufacture.

    Cons

    Con- Once you leave the manufacturing area, performance and customer service for this area really drops off. One of the weaker HR, payroll, training and reporting systems I have ever worked with.

    I've implemented IQMS for a company that manufactures custom carbon fiber products in the areas of Automotive, Aerospace, Industrial, Military, Medical, Oil & Gas, Marine and Recreational products. IQMS allows the flexibility to manufacture products using various different types of BOM's and configurations. Lot Tracking and Serialization help keep traceability of products from finished Goods down to the Purchase order, and delivery date of the raw materials used to build the product.
